    Setting up my speakers!

    haha, so you think this will be good enough? however if this fails then? how would i be able to connect a external amp to my receiver? just for obviously the front 2 channels as the rest can be normally driven through the av receiver.

    Setting up a 7.2 home sytem

    just inacase we have a party or something one day i wouldnt want it to overheat as the speakers are 300 watts plus and the receiver can only provide them with around 120 watts. right that sort of makes sense (im getting there lol) can you see this picture and then explain from there...

    Setting up a 7.2 home sytem

    so would these speakers go onto a receiver that only has around 120 watts per channel? i think they are 4ohms and bi-wire able so can add each top and bottom to receiver separate.
